This document reports the results of a November 1994 conference held by RAND in Amsterdam, which brought together experts and stakeholders from different countries to identify key airport safety policy challenges and to discuss possible solutions. Participants were drawn from airport authorities, carriers, manufacturers, regulators, and governmental and nongovernmental international organizations. Areas covered include defining and measuring airport safety; public perceptions; how safety is addressed in other industries; the current state of airport safety; safety developments in manufacturing, air traffic control, and flight operations; and new institutional mechanisms and requirements at the national and international levels.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation conference proceeding series. RAND conference proceedings present a collection of papers delivered at a conference or a summary of the conference.
